Shareholder services at capita

hellotmobileBananas had to ring capita and the like who do the grunt work for companies on the stock exchange.  I had a basic question and never got a straight answer after at least two seasons of the four seasons by that dead Italian bloke. You know –

duh dah da nun da na da etc. screech screech

As usual i offer my standard used banana skin prize if you can name that composer.

A month previous i had to ring another for something else and got nowhere with the staff who sounded very clerical and bored shitless and the computer says no attitude.

Anyhow capita are singled out here for having an email address that may or may work, and a website that displayed this as i block the rc4 cipher

borkedMorons among us save us.  And after giving out more info than i got with an organisation with ‘Deputy Team Leader’  as job titles i do wonder about these registrar services and why its better to communicate with them via paper forms since that appears to be there level.

Oh dear it seems they are bad with ssl looking unloved.


I will defer this administrative headache and the remaining two seasons of music for another day i to entertain us for another time. da na ha na ha na – you know it. Are you sick of it yet?

Comment to win the used banana skin.

Microsoft tracking of messages



The zoo got an email from a microsoft domain  its tracking is somewhat scary, and i bet the spy agencies track this too.

Accept-Language: en-GB, en-US
Content-Language: en-GB
x-forefront-antispam-report: :
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
MIME-Version: 1.0

So apart from spf, it failed all email tests.  I guess i will see a lot of spam being sent from microsoft servers because of a lack of dkim and dmarc soon.  If you use microsoft products then your probably being tracked.

multiarch linux ‘fun’ and drm

bloodThe zoo is an i386 kernel user although its not the processor limitation you think, so one day i went and installed a test amd64 kernel on my daily pc.

Generally it works until you hit web browsers and flash – the i386 version of firefox works. 64bit has a gtk issue, pepper flash is not cross compiled with i386 so pepper won’t work, so your back to the old i386 flash.

I installed an esr version of firefox and that did work but i cant diagnose if its pure 64bit or both – it did moan about about missing 64bit flash – i think you know but i am past caring about it.

are-you-serious-wtf-meme-baby-faceI am happy i dont use flash, since most of this is down to laziness on not cross compiling (google) and the copyright mafia who see things in a perverse way like using a youtube game clip and then dcma-ing it and will make a nightmare for there partners after all it probably is enforced on broadcasters that they must use this flash crap.

So i am using an i386 port of firefox, with a i386 flash  on a amd64 machine, since pepper flash is apparently 64bit only which means the 64bit firefox version cannot access.  If your head hurts sorry.

babymemeGoogle-chrome fails to impress.  I think this 64bit thing is a bit pointless but i got sshfs to work – woo.

Well done everybody for fucking up video to get into this situation that affects more than just the linux os.


unfun chemistry

retard says sorryChemistry does save lives, unlike religious people who might be described as the chemical weapons makers of all time – sure drink the sewage water as alcohol is bad (my blog)

Science too can make stuff and the bbc had a heavily censored documentary of porton down who is celebrating a hundred years of chemical weapon research.

Lite on detail this documentary seeems to prove that enligtened people know that this stuff is nasty and unless your a arab despot you dont use it.

Although not a lot was said it was genuinely creepy.

Porton Down is not without its skeletons in the cupboard but it would appear that lessons have been learnt by some (my blog) in that time.

Lets hope that wisdom continues and that i am not a fool.

Back to normal posts too yay!

Not inspiring

No drm on the old tv sets

The olympics is recorded but sold for television companies. Then it is like the event never happened afterward, luckily for you lot a doped up medal winner might get there face used by advertising something unhealthy but how they became noteworthy is lost.

Since i hate sport i have no problem with this never happened thing (or orwells memory hole) but as a encouragement tool for humans you have to agree the olympics and sport might as well not happen.

It is also interesting to note that Brazil likes the master race healthy competitors but not the disabled ones (say oscar)- very fascist/nazi a sentiment that reflects that sport is not for all.

I also have problems identifying celebrities so instead of me thinking what product/brand is that the question becomes who are they as this lady proves who is not a sport legend.

Its also ironic when international businesses sponsor national teams – which is either misplaced nationalism, and sport for sale to the highest bidder.

The more you think about sport the more odd it becomes.

Missing critical thought in news media for olympic sport

Have you noticed that doping and cheat allegations are not reported and broadcast by the television companies at the Olympics.

The msm seems censored take Yulia Chermoshanskaya who had a medal for eight years – i see no news of this from those who pay the ioc for broadcast services.

Funny that


Olympic Council of Ireland’s judo thug and ticket touts


Patrick Hickey judo thug and friend of ticket touts

In this (bbc) Patrick Hickey (a member of the criminal sport of judo [my blog]) , has been arrested in Rio,Brazil over illegal Olympic ticket sales who sold 800 tickets to a Kevin James Mallon a ticket tout.

Sport is an opportunity to get rich and nothing else. Do not mistake what you see as anything else and it may explain why nobody apparently is seeing the events live there as Hickey wants too much for them.

Judo and its association with crime just gets better.
